Ashes are only free because someone else had to give something up. Have you had to give up something this year? Have you lost something that you cared about?
- The ashes we use are from the palm branches used in last year’s Palm Sunday worship service. Even though we hailed him as king, in our sin we have rebelled against our God.
- One day we will be reduced to Ashes before our Holy God.
- When we approach God hoping to find mercy he does not disappoint. There is forgiveness for all in Jesus.
